Perhaps you’ve spent countless hours trying to piece together memories from the previous evening spent drinking copious amounts of alcohol with your friends. It happens. Usually, these memories involve hilarious taxi rides home, missing phones, and a bit of nausea. So we’ve collected some of the best instances on the internet where drunk people found themselves in some highly unexpected predicaments.
Whether it’s stashing pizza on your bicycle for the drunk munchies, throwing your phone off the roof when it’s in airplane mode to see if it could fly, or waking up with a photo of a llama on your phone, these instances will make you laugh, cry, and maybe even send shudders down your spine. Be grateful you’ve never been this drunk (hopefully), and enjoy the stories below.
50. Special Instructions
Drunk people’s stomachs are like bottomless pits. When they drink alcohol, they get the munchies. Drunks can somehow manage to devour six slices of pizza, a bucket of chicken wings, and a plate of french fries with ease. It makes us feel better in the moment, but it certainly doesn’t make us feel better when we’re trying to work it all off at the gym. This Internet user shares his munchies experience about when he got the Domino’s guy to deliver him McDonalds by using the “special instructions” section on his online pizza order. That delivery driver deserves a huge tip and an award (via Dr. Graduate).
The main reason for taking a taxi home after a night out drinking is obviously to prevent drinking and driving. It’s one of the most horrific combinations in the world, with possibly the most disastrous outcome. Not only could you seriously injure yourself, but you could injure someone else – or cause a fatal accident. Thanks to taxis and Uber, drunk people are usually pretty responsible for this sort of thing. This guy on the Internet shares his experience getting home after a night out, with the help of the cops. These Tasmanian cops helped him home, and even took a photo of him, so he’d remember how he got home. These are probably the coolest cops in the world (via Dr. Graduate).
We’ve all done some stupid things while intoxicated – it’s human nature in some way. Drunk people usually lose the logical part of their brain, which is how they end up stealing things or breaking our phones. Debra here decided to see if her phone could fly while it was on “airplane mode.” Technically, airplane mode does seem like it could make a phone turn into an airplane, but to a sober person with a logical mind, they’d know a phone could never fly. After this escapade, we’re sure Debra learned her lesson. Unfortunately, Debra learned it the hard way (via Dr. Graduate).
When drunk people manage to spill their drunk munchies on the ground, it can feel like the end of the world for them. This guy dropped his burrito on the ground after a night out. He looks extremely defeated. We’re not sure how he’s ever going to get over this. If we were him, we’d probably eat the burrito off the ground. It’s too much of a good thing to go to waste. Just think about all the time and effort that went into constructing that perfect burrito (via Dr. Graduate).
Drunk people send some of the funniest text messages in the world. It’s because when you’re drunk, you lose your motor reflexes and ability to think clearly, so you come up with strange ideas and conversations. Some of these conversations should be photographed, framed, and hung on the wall. This conversation is one of them. This guy was texting his friend and invited him out. What he failed to realize was that he was standing right next to him looking him straight in the face. Imagine his reaction when he realized his friend was right there. That is, if he even reacted (via Dr. Graduate).
We barely trust our shirt pockets to hold our quarters. Yet drunk people come up with the strangest ideas, like this guy who has a lot of trust in his flannel pocket. He placed a fresh pint of Guinness in his shirt pocket. To be honest, it looks sturdy and well-cared for. Now all he needs is a straw and he can drink his beer without his hands. That deserves a gold medal (via Dr. Graduate).
We’ve all discovered lost socks and underwear in our dresser drawers. These drawers usually seem like a never-ending black hole, where things just disappear. It’s not uncommon to place your keys or wallet in your dresser drawer after a night out because it seems like drunk people are always losing things. This drunk person took it a step further and managed to lose their Friday night dinner in their dresser drawer. Hopefully, it was only in there for a few hours so they could still enjoy it (via Dr. Graduate)
When you attend Oktoberfest, you sign an unspoken agreement to leave all your dignity at home. It’s part of the fun. It’s one of the most exciting and booziest festivals in the world, with liters upon liters of beer at all hours of the day. It turns out that drunk people consume around 7.5 million liters of beer at Oktoberfest. It looks like these guys thoroughly enjoyed their Oktoberfest, which ended up in a power nap while they commuted back home. Honestly, we’d probably do the same (via Dr. Graduate).
Have you ever felt like you were being watched? These people certainly have. Drunk people come up with the strangest ideas. This person decided to decorate all the condiments in their fridge with googly eyes. It’s hilarious, and we’d probably leave the eyes on, even though we might feel like the eyes are judging us for our late-night snacking. Our biggest question, though, is why they had enough googly eyes lying around to do this in the first place? Nevertheless, every time they open the fridge, they’re bound to laugh (via Dr. Graduate).
Drunk people who wear contacts usually end up leaving them in by accident. We’ve all been there. Sometimes, though, we remember to take out our contacts and pat ourselves on the back the following morning. This Internet user attempted at being responsible by taking out their contacts. They got halfway there because they also managed to leave them in their makeup container. Unfortunately, they couldn’t wear them anymore and they inevitably ended up in the trash (via Dr. Graduate).
When we think of creative ideas while drunk, we feel like we’ve cracked the secret code to life. Drunk people usually end up thinking these ideas are greater than they are. This Internet user had the bright idea to put their pizza on their bike while they cycled back home. We can imagine how excited they were to come up with this plan. Unfortunately, they forgot about their pizza and left it on their bike. We wonder if they ended up eating the pizza because it would be such a shame to go to waste (via Dr. Graduate).
We love people who honor integrity and honesty, even if they did something wrong while they were drunk. Mistakes happen and drunk people are more prone to mistakes in general. This person stole a bike after a night out. Imagine waking up to a brand-new bike in your garage? There would be so many questions. Instead of keeping the bike, they decided to put posters up around their city, asking for the bike’s owner to contact them. Let’s hope the owner found their bike in the end (via Dr. Graduate).
Drunk people have no balance or special awareness. It’s also one of the worst parts about being around drunk people when you’re sober. That, and when you’re drunk, you lose a lot of your politeness solely because your brain is saturated with alcohol. This woman managed to keep her politeness and apologize to the person she thought she bumped into. It turns out it was her reflection in the mirror, and it took her five minutes to realize this. At least she wasn’t rude to herself but she must’ve been pretty drunk (via Dr. Graduate).
If we heard our friend was in the hospital while drunk, we’d probably freak out. There are some friends out there who are always thinking about other people and making sure they’re okay, especially during a night out. Derrick is one of those drunk people. He found out his friend was in the hospital by checking her location and texted her to make sure she was okay. The gesture was kind, but it turns out his friend works at the hospital. He was so drunk that he forgot. We do think it’s a little creepy, though, that he’s checking his friend’s locations. Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he was being kind (via Dr. Graduate).
For some reason, alcohol gives us some people the confidence to try a fake accent. A lot of the time, it ends up being an English or Irish accent. Something is exciting about speaking in an accent completely different than your own. During a night out, this woman faked an Irish accent, and then met a guy at a bar who also had an Irish accent. She couldn’t figure out if he was Irish or not, and he was probably thinking the same. A few days later, she found his Tinder profile. It turns out he’s exactly like her and fakes Irish accents when he’s drunk. They ended up a match made in heaven (via Dr. Graduate).
Throwing up after a night of drinking is never fun. In fact, it’s one of the worst parts about getting drunk. We always hope it won’t happen to us. Just like the munchies, getting sick from alcohol is an unspoken contract that drunk people reluctantly sign. This Reddit user shares their experience getting sick in his dad’s car.
He said, “I could feel myself about to throw up. So like any sound-minded person would NOT do, I tried to open the car door (I was sitting in the front passenger seat) on the f**king motorway, traveling at 70mph. Luckily my dad had locked the door so I was forced to open the window instead. I proceeded to stick my head out the window and threw up.” Because they were traveling so fast, the vomit ended up in the back seat and on top of two of his friends. Talk about regret (via GodBurntMyBush).
As we all know, drunk people lose things all the time. Shoes and socks are certainly no exception. The Reddit user shares a story about their friend losing a sock while drunk. The strangest part of the story, though, is that he lost his sock without ever taking off his shoes.
They said, “Later in the morning, we wake up and the guy who was passed out is walking around the room like he’s searching for something. We eventually ask him what he’s looking for. As it turns out, he is missing a sock. The guy has both his shoes still on and tied but is sans one sock.” They never ended up finding the sock, either. It’s a drunk mystery that will never be solved (Keinichn).
It’s widely known that alcohol is liquid confidence. We end up doing things we normally wouldn’t do or are too afraid to even try. Drunk people end up discovering hidden talents, or at least they think they do. This person decided to have a photoshoot with their McDonald’s hash browns after a night out. They took it to another level and photographed many different angles. Honestly, they’re quite talented. They should consider promoting McDonald’s. Maybe they just found themselves a new job (via Dr. Graduate).
No matter what age you are, some drunk ideas are never good ideas. Drunk people come up with some of the dumbest ideas, and of course, we always think it’s a good idea at the time. We usually wake up the next morning and ask ourselves why? This Reddit user shared their experience with one of their ingenious drunk ideas that involved car surfing.
They said, “one night we had all had close to a bottle of Coconut Amsterdam each and we decided to go “car surfing” where we both climbed on top of the car and had a friend drive us around. I was hanging on to the car with one hand and one leg, and we went close to 60mph down county roads.” That sounds plain stupid, and they’re lucky they didn’t get hurt. It’s unnecessary and dangerous. At least it made for a good story in the end (via Reddit).
Sometimes, a night out drinking leads to a wonderful surprise. This person adopted a cat after their night out. She looks content and fits right in, even though we’re wondering if this person wanted a cat while sober. Then again, drunk minds are sober thoughts, right? Maybe she’s always wanted a cat but was too afraid to take the step to get one. Now, she has a cat, even though it’s a lot of responsibility. Let’s hope that cat was a stray, too, so she didn’t actually steal it from her neighbor (via Dr. Graduate).
As we mentioned earlier, the drunk munchies are real. We usually end up eating way more than we should. This drunk person woke up with a pound of potato salad in their bag the following morning, and not only because of their drunk munchies. They were too polite to ask for a bite of the salad, so they ended up taking an entire pound. Let’s hope the potatoes were still edible, since wasting an entire pound of the messy salad is a waste (via Dr. Graduate).
When drunk people try to cook, it’s hilarious. It usually ends up burnt or overdone. This Internet user woke up one morning to discover their brother tried to cook pasta in the toaster after a night out. It’s creative, to say the least, but wouldn’t taste very good. We’re not even sure how the pasta would turn out. It would probably be blackened and burnt to a crisp. What’s even funnier is it looks like their brother gave up halfway through after realizing what they were trying to do (via Dr. Graduate).
Drunk people have the confidence it takes to steal while they’re intoxicated. It’s common knowledge. This Reddit user shared their story of stealing a box of Cheerios from a Tesco Express, “so I could smack my friend in the face with them.” That seems like a hilarious reason to steal something. Again, a drunk mind isn’t a logical one, so it probably seemed like a good idea at the time. Hopefully, their friend had a genius plan and got back at them with a box of Lucky Charms (via Tudpool).
Here’s another example of drunk people with a horrible idea. It looks like a tornado went through their kitchen. It turns out their friend attempted to cook himself a meal after a night out drinking. We’re not sure what happened but it doesn’t look good. Maybe he couldn’t find the salt. There’s certainly more to this story than meets the eye, although we’ll never know what happened. Maybe the drunk person doesn’t even know what happened (via Dr. Graduate).
When your parents are drunk, it’s normally either hilarious or disastrous. This Internet user shares their story when they stumbled upon their drunk mother, who decided to organize all the potatoes in size order. We love these kinds of drunk stories since drunk people come up with the most fascinating ideas. Why not organize your potatoes at three in the afternoon? At the time, it seemed like a perfectly good idea. It still is, since now they have a great photo out of it (via Dr. Graduate)
This is one of the greatest photos on this list. Not only is the dog decorated with three party hats on its back, so it somewhat resembles a dinosaur, but his wife is singing Jurassic Park in the background. She sounds like a drunk person we’d want to hang out with. This dog is certainly a wonderful drinking buddy, too, since he allowed his owner to decorate his body like a dinosaur. He even has a sly smile on his face. Maybe he’s enjoying the entertainment (via Dr. Graduate).
As we’ve mentioned earlier, drunk texts are some of the funniest and weirdest things out there. This drunk person decided to be brave and text the person she loves, admitting her love for them. Unfortunately, they had no idea who she was, so the love was unrequited. This isn’t the sort of text you want to wake up to the following morning. Hopefully, the guy made a mistake and accidentally deleted her number. Let’s pretend the story has a happy ending so we can still believe in true love (via Dr. Graduate).
This seems sketchy. Not only did this drunk person wake up with 12 times the amount of money they went out with, but they also managed to score two phones and the keys to someone’s car. Usually, you wake up with 12 times less money than you went out with, not more. We could sit here all day and speculate on what happened, but we’ll never truly know. Let’s hope this person was a good Samaritan and returned the money, phones, lighters, and car keys. We’re not quite sure she’s a drunk person we’d want to hang out with (via Dr. Graduate).
We’ve all been that drunk person that was denied entry into a bar. Usually, we turn around and try our luck with the next one. This person was so drunk, that they thought their own house was another bar, and their dad, in a cop uniform, was a bouncer. She surely had her drunk goggles on. She almost got away with it, too, but because her dad caught her, it turns out she was not allowed out of the house for a while afterwards (via Dr. Graduate).
If we broke our shower rod when sober, we’d end up going out to buy a new one. Our logical mind gets in the way and blocks our creativity. Luckily, this person was drunk when they broke their shower rod, which led to a creative alternative: a tree branch. Honestly, it looks sturdy and gives their bathroom a bit of character. We’d keep it. Next time we’re in desperate need of a shower rod, we’re going to use this guy’s idea (via Dr. Graduate).
Drunk people are ingenious in their own hilarious ways. They come up with ideas that a sober mind just wouldn’t think of. This drunk woman mistook her phone for her shoe and proceeded to wear her phone as her shoe after dropping it on the ground. It’s an honest mistake, and we can’t blame her, since we’ve probably done the same. At least this woman is responsible for taking the train home. Hopefully, she realized she was wearing her phone as a shoe before she got off the train (via Dr. Graduate).
One of the first things people do after a wild night out drinking is to check their phones for pictures. The pictures don’t lie and are key for helping us piece together a night of drinking. These guys got drunk and had an adventure around the small town. They ended up taking a group selfie with a llama, who seems to have fallen in love with one of the guys. These guys are good at making friends. Sometimes, inebriation leads to wonderful friendships, even if those friends happen to be llamas (via Dr. Graduate).
It’s easy to mistake a calculator for an alarm especially a long night of drinks. It has numbers you need to type in, and when you’re drunk, it all looks the same. This drunk person set their 8:30 AM alarm on their calculator, which never went off. Hopefully, they didn’t have to get up for work. That’s a funny story to tell at the workplace, though. Imagine explaining to your boss you missed your alarm because you set your calculator instead? That’s a way better excuse than ones we had to use as a kid in school, like “a dog ate my homework” (via Dr. Graduate).
Who said packing peanuts can’t double as a comfortable bed? This girl is pretty genius. If you can’t make it to your bed, the next best alternative is a box of packing peanuts. She looks content and lost in a dream world, so her idea definitely went according to plan. Again, we’re witnessing a prime example of when drunk people come up with ideas that normally wouldn’t cross our minds when sober. Maybe she even replaced her bed with the box of packing peanuts (via Dr. Graduate).
Drunk people lose things all the time: phones, money, shoes. This drunk person managed to lose their prosthetic leg and left it outside the bar. We can’t even begin to imagine what they must’ve done to reach this point. Maybe their friends challenged them to some drunk game, and when they were finished, forgot about their leg. Hopefully, the bar took the leg in, cared for it, and returned it to its rightful owner (via Dr. Graduate).
We love when drunk people do the strangest things. This Reddit user shared their drunk story about giving their glasses to a bush. They said, “I gave my glasses to a bush because he seemed like he needed them more than me. Still there the next day somehow.” Who said bushes don’t need glasses? Maybe his drunk mind befriended the bush, and the bush told him he couldn’t see anything. At least the bush took good care of his glasses, and they were still there the next day. They’re both pretty good at sharing (via bottle-me)
We never want to be one of those drunk people that pass out before everyone else. It never turns out as we hope it will. This Reddit user shared her story of when her husband passed out drunk, and she shaved his chest. She said, “I got some shaving cream, a razor, and a cup of water and shaved his chest baby smooth. I was even careful around the nipples.” Let’s just say, the next morning, her husband was not happy. He sent her a slew of angry messages before finally accepting the situation. At least his hair will grow back. Kudos to that wife (via Princess4getme).
Drunk people can’t do the math. It’s common knowledge that it just never works out. They can’t add correctly and usually mistake bills for a different amount. This woman mistakenly thought she was doing a good deed and tipping the taxi driver very well. She slipped the driver a $10 bill, winked, and told him to keep the change, but the ride cost $24. Maybe she thought she was handing him two twenty-dollar bills. You can guess the cab driver wasn’t too happy and there was an awkward conversation following the exchange. We can’t blame her, though, because we’ve all been there (via Reddit).
It’s always interesting when we wake up in clothes other than the ones we wore out the night before. This Reddit user went out with her boyfriend one evening and woke up in a tablecloth and handcuffs. We can’t imagine why she was in a tablecloth, but, apparently, their drunk minds thought it was a good idea. She can’t remember what happened, but she assumes it was a good night (via Honkey_Cat). Or something.
We’ve seen drunk people stealing bikes, phones, and money on this list. But what about a paddleboat? One night, this Reddit user got so drunk that he and his friends stole a paddleboat. They told the ‘funny’ story, “Went to a friend’s house. Drank some brews. Stole the neighbor’s paddle boat. Went on a voyage at 2 a.m. Picked up a friend across the lake. Continued on the voyage. The boat starts sinking. We abandon ship and had to walk 2 miles around the lake to get back.” What an awesome story, except for the fact that they abandoned their neighbor’s ship. We can assume their neighbor wasn’t happy to find out their stolen paddleboat sunk to the bottom of the lake (via AdamJacquese_).
Drunk people frequently seem to injure their hands or feet. It’s because we lose all our motor skills and think we have ingenious ideas. Those two together are recipes for disaster. This Reddit user woke up one morning and noticed their toes were cut up. They said, “I started to remember a dream I had where I could not open a window. Heading back up I saw bloody footprints on the stairs. Then, waking up all the way I noticed a framed picture on the floor, glass smashed. Suddenly, I remember pounding the “window” with both fists, trying to get it open.” It turns out their “dream” wasn’t a dream after all, and was instead a drunk memory. At least they only cut their toes and nothing else (via Grimsnot).
There are some drunk people out there who get smarter when they drink. Even though they’re few and far between, they are definitely out there. This woman is one of them. She couldn’t get a taxi home after a night out drinking. Instead of walking home or calling a friend, she decided to order a kebab delivery to her house. When the delivery driver showed up, she got into the car with him. It turns out he’s not only delivering her kebab but her, too. Next time you’re stuck in this sort of predicament, you might want to consider this as an option (via Reddit).
Many of us have a drunk alter ego. They’re the ones to blame after having that first sip of booze since anything that happens after that moment is not coming from our sober, rational minds. This Reddit user is no exception. On her 21st birthday, she was so wasted that she ran through the forest shouting that she was Katniss Everdeen. Then, she said, “I ended up by the river shouting quotes from Jurassic Park 3. Then my friend came with his harmonica, and we all laid there listening to him play it.” Honestly, that sounds like a fun night (via atomic peaches).
If you’ve ever woken up after a night out with a completely new look, you’re not alone. It happens to the best of us, and it turns out that drunk people are the best types to pick on. This Reddit user shares their experience of waking up with some interesting new additions. They said, “not sure what happened but I woke up the next morning with a mustache and two red dildos stuck to my head to make me look like some demented Satan.” We’re not sure what happened here, either, but it sounds like he had a fun (well, interesting, at least) night (via Reddit).
Drunk games are quite often the best games. They usually end up in a lot of laughter and confusion. No one wins and the game falls apart. This Reddit user decided to play a game called Edward 40 Hands, which is a common game played by drunk people, where you tape two 40-ounce bottles of beer to your hands and drink. They spent the night drinking and “chucking the empty 40s on top of the neighbor’s roof. This became known as the “Edward 40-toss”. The bottles would bounce on the roof and slide down from the peak, and usually pick up speed and then jump over the gutter and fall back down to the grass. Sometimes they would get stuck on the roof..” We’re not sure if this is a game we’d want to play (via -t0m-).
Things seem scarier when you’re drunk since it’s harder for you to process anything rationally. That includes getting chased by people in gorilla suits. This Reddit user experienced just that, and said, “my boyfriend, a few friends, and I were staying at one of the friend’s cabins for a few days. Unknown to most of us one of the friends brought his gorilla costume. Late at night after we’d be drinking heavily the guy put on the gorilla suit and chased me and one other person down the dirt road for a bit.” When she wasn’t freaking out anymore, she tried to strangle him (via monoxide_lullaby).
Being drunk can be confusing. When you’re wasted, you never know what’s going on. This Reddit user shared their experience of being so drunk that they had a 20-minute conversation with a goldfish. We’re not sure what they could possibly talk to a goldfish about for 20 minutes, but we assume it was quite a stimulating conversation. Maybe the goldfish was even responding to them. We would’ve loved to see this in real life. Drunk people do some of the funniest things in the world (via iDoctor).
Drunk people sometimes assign meaning to inanimate objects, like chairs or lamps. This Reddit user’s drunk friend found a rock he found important to him after a night out drinking. But it doesn’t stop there. His friends lost him, and the next day, his friends heard about a guy throwing rocks through windows. Minutes later, he was walking by their window wearing only torn socks and holding a rock. They assumed he was the guy throwing rocks through the windows and he was caught red-handed (via Grimsnot).
We’ve read about some strange stories on this list, but this one has to top them all. Again, drunk people have the most fascinating ideas. This Reddit user said, “I got super cross faded the night before my buddy’s wedding and proceeded to break 2 mirrors over my head, then use same head to smash a hole into a door. Also, disassemble a bunk bed at the campground we were at, and then finish off the night by doing some bloodletting with a piece of said broken mirrors ala Billy in the movie Predator. I write it all off by saying that I had watched Conan the Barbarian the night before and was channeling the barbarian spirit.”
He absolutely channeled his barbarian spirit. But it’s not something we would recommend before a friend’s wedding (via dankwyzzard).
It’s never fun getting locked out of your house. But have you ever gotten locked inside somewhere? There are drunk people out there who certainly have, just like this Reddit user’s friend. His friend “winds up in a parking garage. The garage closes for the night. He pulls the fire alarm, police, fire, etc. all show up. He comes casually walking out, tells the nearest officer “It’s okay, I’m a Secret Service agent”. Cop takes one look, tells him to GTFO.” At least he didn’t get into trouble and has a good story out of it (via mikehill33).
